We are delighted to welcome you to our family home which we have been running as a Bed and Breakfast for the past 12 years. Having worked in small hotels, we have had many years’ experience of offering hospitality, and having travelled extensively, we also understand the importance of getting it right. We want to make your stay as relaxing and comfortable as possible, offering the same high standards we would expect ourselves when staying away from home.
Every guest is looking for a unique experience and we want to provide our visitors with the best possible guidance, whether this is recommending ways in which to spend your day, putting together a picnic, or sitting around our kitchen table with a map of Scotland planning your trip further afield.
Situated in the heart of the historic Georgian New Town of Edinburgh, Nelson Street is a perfect location from which to explore the city. If you are coming in to town from the airport, the tram stop is a five minute walk, as is the bus station. Waverley train station is also within easy walking distance. Shops, cafes, restaurants and art galleries are all a stone’s throw away. At the end of your day, you will find the Guest Room a welcoming haven to come back to, tucked away in a quiet corner off a wide cobbled street… downhill all the way! If the hills intimidate you, local buses are on hand.
If you feel like a stroll in the beautiful surroundings of the private Drummond Place Gardens over the road, please ask us for the key.
We have enjoyed our stay with you enormously. We loved the welcoming atmosphere, the beautiful décor and the tranquillity at The Guest Room. Thank you for your hospitality, advice and memories.
Just lovely to be back. Such a special place to stay. See you next time.
Such a wonderful stay at the Guest Room. Katrina and Fergus it was a pleasure to meet you and to stay in the perfect ‘bolt hole’, Everything was spot on from the comfortable bed to the homemade biscuits. You are wonderful hosts – thank you so much. We will be back.
Probably our fifth stay here and it has been as fabulous as ever. Delicious breakfasts, lovely room and great hosts. We will be back next year.
Beautiful room, great hospitality, perfect location and SO relaxed. Had to drag ourselves out of our room to see Edinburgh! Best Bed and Breakfast we have stayed in. Perfect!
